Workers' Housing Schemes in Ostrava: The schemes built by the Vítkovice Ironworks and other industrial companies

Martin Jemelka (ed.)

This publication is the last volume in a three-part series entitled Workers' Housing Schemes in Ostrava, whose previous volumes (published in 2011 and 2012) contained information on the architectural, demographic and social development of 54 housing schemes (known in Central Europe as "colonies") for miners and coking plant workers on both the left and right banks of the Ostravice River. This third and final volume in the series maintains the structure established in the previous two volumes (with the sites ordered according to the current administrative division of the City of Ostrava into municipal districts) and maps the workers' housing schemes built by some of Ostrava's major companies.
